Food retention and bile reflux has been frequently observed in gastric cancer patients following a subtotal gastrectomy. The aim of this study was to determine whether reconstruction methods after the distal subtotal gastrectomy influenced the degree of food residue and bile reflux.
The prospectively collected data was reviewed retrospectively for 522 patients with early gastric cancer who had undertaken a follow-up endoscopic examination after a distal subtotal gastrectomy between 2003 and 2006.

Billroth I and II reconstructions are commonly performed after distal gastrectomy. Both may cause duodenogastric and duodenogastroesophageal reflux, conditions reported to have carcinogenetic potential. The aim of this study was to investigate which reconstructive procedure would most effectively prevent bile reflux into the gastric remnant and esophagus after distal gastrectomy.

Following distal gastrectomy, carcinogenesis has been suggested to result from gastroduodenal reflux. In this study, surgical cases of gastric cancer arising after distal gastrectomy were analyzed clinico-pathologically and the possible link to reflux examined.
Thirty-two patients (24 males, 8 females; mean age, 68.

Food residue is often seen in the gastric remnant after partial gastrectomy, making it difficult to diagnose early cancer in the residual stomach. The aims of this study were to clarify the risk factors for the accumulation of food residue, and to study methods of preparation for endoscopy in patients who had undergone distal gastrectomy.
374 endoscopic examinations of patients who had undergone distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer were compared with 2168 endoscopic examinations in patients without a history of gastrectomy.

To evaluate the function of the remnant stomach after proximal subtotal gastrectomy for cardiac cancer and to improve the life quality of post-surgical patients.
17 patients with cardiac cancer underwent proximal subtotal gastrectomy combined with disconnection of pyloric sphincter (PSG + DPS) by finger pressing. Intraoperative pyloric manometric studies were performed in the 17 patients before and after DPS.
